You should probably not be running Solaris 10 on your laptop. I don't think Solaris 10 has support for any wifi devices. If you
want to run Solaris on a laptop, you are much better off with OpenSolaris. There has been a tremendous amount of desktop
work done in OpenSolaris that is not reflected in Solaris 10 and will never be.
